The HCRC Language Technology Group are pleased to announce the
availability of version 1.1 of LT XML.  As well as numerous bug fixes
and improvements compared with version 1.0, this release includes
optional validation of XML documents.  Various changes have been mode
for thread-safety but these are still untested.  

LT XML is both a set of command-line/console XML applications and a C
language library supporting a powerful API for new application
development.  It is available free for evaluation and non-commercial
use.  For an overview and information about licences, including
licences for commercial use, see

The v1.1 release comes in two versions:

 * A source version for Unix platforms, with straight-forward
   compilation and installation procedures;

 * A source plus DLLs and executables version for WIN32 platforms.

Both versions include extensive documentation of the tools and the
API, together with detailed examples of how to build your own
application using the API.

The functionality of the tools in this release includes:

 * Text extraction
 * Powerful markup-aware 'grep' (search)
 * Down-translation
 * Tokenisation
 * Sorting
 * Transclusion using a subset of XML-link

The API allows applications to choose, or even switch, between an
event-oriented and a tree-oriented view of XML documents.
